My Grocery List Week of Oct5-11

If you've been following along on my grocery budget challenge then you will know that ON AVERAGE I have managed to stick to approx. $65/week. Some weeks were a little more and some a little less. This week, however, there are some great deals (like peanut butter) that I don't want to pass up. One thing to keep in mind when sticking to a budget like this is to plan ahead. I KNOW that we use a lot of peanut butter so by stocking up when it is on sale for a great price it will filter through to help me save on my budget in later week's/months.
Here's my shopping list for this week to go with our meal plan. Tentative total: $86.81 +taxes (if I manage to get a turkey)

Food Basics:

    • Turkey- SALE 88cents/lb (since its already mid-morning of Fri I'm not sure if there will even be any left by the time I get there but I have my fingers crossed, this would be for a week in Nov. anyways so there's always time to revamp the plan if they are out)
